  • Pruiett, S.D.; Morrill, J.L.; Blecha, Frank; Higgins, James J.; Anderson, N.V.; Reddy, P.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1989)
    Calves were bottle-fed milk replacers at 10% of weekly adjusted body weight for 8 wk. Treatments were 1) no supplements (control), 2) .16 oz vitamin C, or 3) .16 oz vitamin C plus 125 IU/lb vitamin E. Lymphocytes and ...
  • Strahm, T.; Harner, Joseph P.; Key, David V.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Nine concrete storage basins were sampled on Kansas dairies and analyzed for nutrient content of sand-laden dairy manure. The manure average 75% moisture content during the three sampling periods. The average total ...
  • Dunham, J.R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1988)
    The 1988 National Research Council's (NRC) Nutrient Requirements of Dairy Cattle have been revised. Adjustments have been made in the recommended requirements for net energy for lactation (NEL); crude protein (CP); calcium ...
  • Bradford, Barry J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Reducing cull rates and improving fertility in early lactation has a dramatic effect on the profitability of many dairies. Continuing research on transition cow nutrition has led to the development of an array of nutritional ...
  • Smith, M.W.; Hoffman, D.P; Lamb, G.C.; Kobayashi, Y.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1995)
    In Experiment 1, the effectiveness of two estrus-detection methods (visual observation vs radiotelemetric, pressure-sensitive, rumpmounted devices [HeatWatch®]) were compared in heifers. A pressure sensitive ...
  • Smith, J.F.; Harner, Joseph P.; Bradford, Barry J.; Overton, M.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Low profile cross ventilated freestall buildings are one option for dairy cattle housing. These facilities allow producers to control the cows’ environment during all seasons of the year. As a result, an environment ...
  • Pulley, S.L.; Wallace, L.D.; Mellieon, H.I.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG) on various characteristics associated with an effective timed artificial insemination (AI) protocol in lactating dairy cows. ...
  • Pursley, J.R.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1992)
    An experiment was conducted to examine the effects of GnRH on the secretion of FSH, LH, estradiol, and progesterone in serum and changes in ovarian structures. Dairy cows were assigned randomly to receive either 100 ...
  • Portaluppi, M.A.; Tenhouse, D.E.; Lloyd, A.; Eborn, D.R.; Kacuba, S.; DeJarnette, J.M; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    We hypothesized that increasing concentrations of progesterone after artificial insemination (AI) would increase fertility. Our objective was to assess changes in ovarian structures, incidence of ovulation, and change in ...
  • Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1986)
    The present surplus of dairy products has led to a decrease in farm-level milk receipts. Future reductions in the federal milk price support program, together with a predictable increase in feed grain and protein supplement ...
  • Buttrey, B.S.; Burns, M.G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Experiments have shown human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to be more effective than GnRH as a means to induce ovulation of folli-cles. Dosages used, however, have differed greatly among experiments. A study was per-formed ...
  • Beharka, A.A.; Morrill, J.L.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1990)
    Seventy-three, neonatal, Holstein, heifer calves in one experiment and 45 neonatal, Holstein, bull calves in another were used to study the effects of dietary Aspergillus oryzae extract (Amaferm) on calf performance. ...
  • Dunham, J.R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1995)
    The first 305-2×-ME lactation record (after 45 days in milk) projected by the DHI program in 28 cows was not different from their first projected lactation record in a previous lactation in which recombinant bovine ...
  • Hammond, A.; Scheffel, Michael V.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    One hundred and twenty Holstein heifers weighing approximately 450 lb at the beginning of the study were used to evaluate the impact of bambermycins (Gainpro®), monensin (Rumensin®), and lasalocid (Bovatec®) on performance ...
  • Anderson, K.L.; Nagaraja, T. G.; Morrill, J.L.; Reddy, P.G.; Avery, T.B.; Anderson, N.V. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1987)
    Twenty-two newborn, bull calves were used to determine the effects of lasalocid on growth and feed intake of early-weaned calves from week 1 to 12. Calves were assigned to lasalocid or control groups on day 3. Lasalocid-fed ...
  • Velazco, J.; Morrill, J. L.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Schalles, R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1991)
    Sixty-four Holstein steers were used to study the effect of season and age on performance. Animals beginning the trial in spring were heavier (P<.05) and more efficient than calves started in other seasons. There were ...
  • Ferdinand, E.E.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Park, A.F.; DeFrain, J.M.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Wet corn gluten feed and soyhull-steep liquor pellets tended to increase dry matter intake and milk yield. Combining condensed corn steep liquor with raw soybean hulls provides a convenient source of digestible fiber ...
  • Bortone, E. J.; Daccarett, M. G.; Morrill, J. L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Feyerherm, A. M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1991)
    Holstein heifers from the Kansas State University Dairy Teaching and Research Unit were used from 3 mo of age until 21 d before estimated date of calving. They were fed either 100 (control, C) or 115% (enhanced, E) of ...
